What People Say About Dr. John Foster III, MD
Reply
Teriffic doctor and surgeon. I felt like Dr. Foster knew what he was talking about and made me feel at ease about my surgery and the follow up. He took the time to thoroughly answer my questions and it felt like he really cared about getting to know me as a person. Surgery and PT went well and I'm feeling great. Highly recommend.
